The hearing thresholds of two adult manatees were measured using a forced-choice two alternative paradigm and an up/down staircase psychometric method. This is the first behavioral audiogram measured for any Sirenian, as well as the first underwater infrasonic psychometric test with a marine mammal. Auditory thresholds were obtained from 0.4 to 46 kHz, and(More)
The biorobotic emulation of swimming and flying animals carrying out short-distance echolocation while maneuvering is considered. A simple and lightweight sonar for use on a small, maneuverable underwater vehicle for short-distance echolocation is explored. This sonar has four sensors and uses broadband, high-frequency signals to echolocate. The(More)
